South Euclid Police Search for Suspects Skimming Operation

SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio - South Euclid police are asking for help tracking down suspects in what police are calling a skimming operation.

Skimming is a type of card theft where thieves steal your card information, then sell it or use it to make fraudulent purchases.

Police say on February 17, a man, who asked to only be identified as Mike, received an alert on his phone from his bank that there was suspicious activity on his debit card.

"It's terrible. I was having a good time at the Q downtown. It was really a buzz kill to the night. I was angry about it," Mike said.

Officers responded to Walmart on Warrensville Center Road, where the phony purchase had been made.

Police say two men used Mike's credit card information to buy two 65 inch LG TVs spending over $1,600.

Surveillance cameras showed the men waiting on cell phones in the front of the store where they were picked up in two cars, one was a silver GMC Terrain SUV, the other was a white Wolkswageon Passat or Jetta.

Police are working to identify the suspects. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call South Euclid Police Department at (216)381-1234.
